Desert Botanical Garden is a 140-acre botanical garden located in Papago Park and is perfect to visit on a sunny winter day!
This is a must see with the family. Experience the vibrant tranquility of desert plants nestled amid the red rocks of the Sonoran desert. It is a showcase of the allure and a "living art" demonstration of the botanical beauty of the desert vegetation and plants.
Truly a wonderful way to better understand the Sonoran Desert, close to Sky Harbor Airport so a great place to walk off the effects of sitting in a plane for a few hours or a great last stop before catching an afternoon plane. It opens at 8 AM. They also have Gertrudes, a well recognized…
Staggering beauty, wonderful exhibits and events, research and preservation oriented. A MUST!
For a peaceful walk with beautiful scenery. During part of the warmer times of the year there are so many butterflies to be seen nearby. Around the Christmas holidays they normally have live music Christmas lights and my favorite was the hot apple cider drinks.
Some of the most beautiful cacti found here. Also an excellent restaurant on site.
The Garden’s five paved thematic trails introduce you to thousands of arid-land plants from around the world. Must-see events at the Garden include Las Noches de las Luminarias, the Music in the Garden concert series, and summer Flashlight Tours.
A really modern and well manicured place to experience the look and feel of the desert. It's 100% outdoors, so not the greatest spot from May until September, but beautiful the rest of the year around.

“Absolute best spot on a mountain to view the Phoenix Valley. Be aware, although it is a short hike, the trek can be rather steep in some areas. Moderate-high difficulty level. Very popular hike in the city so hike out early if you'd prefer to avoid crowds.”

“Displays at the Musical Instrument Museum in Phoenix are truly interactive. Visitors don headphones that come to life with music and information as exhibits are approached. Musical diversity appears before your ears and eyes with songs and videos of concerts and dances, colorful displays of familiar and unusual instruments, plus traditional costumes and huge photographs. Children and adults even get a hands-on opportunity to make music with a variety of instruments from around the world in the Experience Gallery.”

“Beautiful area of ponds, pinic areas, bike trails and hike trails. Their are a few parks with ponds to check out some Arizona wildlife. The Hole-in-the-Rock is the reddish mountain formation. The hike trail there is easy and short, but again, a popular spot for sunset views of Tempe.”
